Essential Apple Podcast 130: So that Showtime event… Hot or Not?

This week, in the wake of the Apple “It’s Showtime” keynote, and with the luxury of a few days to mull it all over, I am joined by very special guest Carolina Milanesi of Creative Strategies and Tech.pinions to examine what was hot and what was not… and consider why so much of it felt like it wasn’t fully baked yet.

A special thank you shout out to Allister Jenks (@zkarj) for his special donation to support the show… Very much appreciated.
